Hi my friend wishes to visit china for important medical assistance

Customer Question

Hi my friend wishes to visit china for important medical assistance however, she and her partner have only just got their very first British passport do they need to wait six months before using it as this is a matter of urgency. If so would the six months be wavered due to compassionate reasons?
Many Thanks

Hello,

There is no such 6 months waiting period for a new passport, the 6 months is usually required at the end of the passport validity I.e the passport must be valid for at least 6 months.

May I help further?
